Why Coconut Wax?
Coconut wax is created from the internal coconut flesh.
Coconut wax is currently the most sustainable & accessible natural wax available in the USA. Coconut wax is a creamy, softer wax that allows for a cleaner, safer burn than many wax alternatives. The soft wax of coconuts allows candles to have a stronger scent throw as well.
A core value of Wild Indigo & Juniper is sustainability. Coconuts are able to be more sustainably farmed, as well as pesticide-free.
While soy wax is the most common natural wax for candles because it is cheap & widely available, there are some negative implications with soy wax. There are negative environmental impacts of soybean overcultivation & pesticides are commonly used in soybean farming, plus soy is a common allergy & burning soy candles may cause mild allergic reactions.
